Purchasing Automation

GHX helps automate the purchasing process so you can work smarter—not harder. Through a single electronic data interchange (EDI) connection to more than 600 healthcare suppliers, you can work electronically with your trading partners regardless of how they receive orders. Not only can you reduce costs and errors, you'll have enhanced visibility into the order process.

It's time to rethink your supply chain

The healthcare industry is in a tough spot: rising costs and shrinking reimbursements are making it harder than ever to stay afloat. Something’s got to give, and it’s certainly not going to be your mission to consistently deliver high-quality patient care. Now’s the time to rethink the role of the supply chain (your second largest operating expense!) in helping you thrive.

Your supply chain is the perfect target for cost reduction, but you can’t exploit its potential with manual processes and limited visibility. Consider the time and energy your materials management and purchasing departments spend managing orders and resolving exceptions. With GHX, you can save time and money by automating orders and using resources more effectively.

GHX helps you tackle:

  • Managing trading partner connections: Utilize one connection to connect to trading partners and inform your buyers of order transaction status in real-time.
  • Inability to generate EDI: Access an efficient, central source to manage your orders and contracts electronically.
  • Error-prone, manual order processes: View exceptions between orders and vendor acknowledgments, and manage and resolve exceptions before invoices are generated.
  • Lack of centralized purchasing reporting: Product reports highlight purchasing trends such as purchasing history and on- and off-contract purchasing.
